M/S Valentine was built in Japan in 1999 and purchased by Gotlandsbolaget in 2021. Shortly after, M/S Valentin began a long voyage from Europe to the south-eastern Pacific. She is currently on charter to KiwiRail in New Zealand, ferrying vehicles across the Cook Strait between the North and South Islands. KiwiRail has announced that it intends to take up the purchase option in the charter agreement and M/V Valentine will be changing owners in early 2023.
